The Stamford Bridge legend hasn’t played for the national team since 2012…
Chelsea skipper John Terry has made it clear that he does not want to return to the England squad despite missing playing at Wembley, reports the Daily Mirror.
The 34-year-old scored as the Blues beat Tottenham in the final of the Capital One Cup on Sunday. The match was played at the national stadium, and he admitted that he misses being involved in games at the arena.
Terry retired from the national team in 2012 after being given a four match ban for racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand, and hasn’t played since. However, with Roy Hodgson struggling to find centre-backs who both regularly play and are of a high enough quality, a comeback may have been welcomed.
He destroyed the hope by saying: “No. It’s the simple answer, I don’t want to go into the reasons right now. Being back at Wembley, the atmosphere, the stadium, it’s one of the best I have played in, but it’s never crossed my mind. I have drawn a line under it and the England squad can move on now.”
He added: “They started playing the national anthem before the game and I was going then. I was ready for the game. I have missed it, playing in these big stadiums, and in these competitions and I’m delighted to get back to Wembley.”
